View Full Version : Laptop Defrag Problem

07-15-2004, 04:51 PM
I have a Toshiba Satellite 2545CDS laptop. THe other day, I started to defragment the HDD (a 5GB model) and the dang computer locked up on me. Stupidly, I shut it down, and now I can't get the computer to boot back up. When I press the power button, the HDD sounds like it's going to start up, but then it just stops and goes silent. I have to disconnect the power and plug it back in to get it to do the same thing again. During this time, the monitor stays blank and I don't get any response from keyboard input or disks in the A:\ drive. Anyone have any ideas?

Time to rebuild the machine. If you have Window with an NT based OS (2000, XP, etc.), you can try a "repair". Boot from the Windows Install CDROM and try it out.
